Textile Recycling

Textile Recycling

Recycling clothing can be a challenge for communities. However, if you are currently not recycling textiles, please consider offering this important recycling opportunity for your residents. Collect clean and dry clothing, belts and shoes. Items must be bagged and not picked over.

Note: If your facility has a swap shop, do not collect clothing, belts, and shoes in the swap shop, but encourage residents to place in a designated and secure clothing bin.

Contact the following textile recyclers directly to see which program works best for your community.
